Lingering Mother's Day Memories

After I broke down the table and put away the dishes I put some things on the dining table from Mother's Day.  
This put a smile on my face- the inside is a pop up so as you open it the guy is hiding in the cart but then moves up to offer a kiss!

 A sweet card from son and daughter in-law.  They live 2400 miles away so our visits are too far and few.  We have a love for cats in common and they know how I love flowers so this card is a perfect sentiment!  We'll catch up in June when we see them again!

 Sweet daughter came in with this giant card which I adore.  Love the big bird cage and of course the sentiment.

She also gifted me with these lovely carnations and a gift card from a favorite garden store!
You know how long that gift card will last!

I've kept this up all week- still enjoying the memories.

This morning I read a post from Just Jan blog as seen "here"
She included several quotes about mothers that touched my heart.  I selected one to include in my post.

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. 
A mother is something absolutely new. - Rajneesh

I'm watching this little mom out my living room window.  She's staying tight on the nest so we should see some little ones soon. 

We are planning on spreading landscape mulch this weekend.  Not much fun but rewarding in the end. It's going to be very cool this weekend but that's okay since we have to work it won't be hot or sticky!

Thanks for visiting and sharing my lingering Mother's Day memories. 
Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh Liz, I love this post! Such a sweet Mother's Day for you! That card from your hubby is too cute. ;-D If you don't mind me asking, where do your son and DIL live? 2400 miles is a LONG ways away. That must be so hard for you.

    I enjoyed the quote about mothers; thank you for sharing this and have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Liz, your Mother's Day memories are sweet. I love the poem you featured about being a Mother---what true thoughts. We had 6 cubic yards of mulch applied this year by some folks we've used the last couple years. We used to do all that work ourselves, but we are beginning to hire out a few more tasks as we're getting older. Enjoy your time in the garden. We've had so much rain I have to sneak in times between raindrops. ♥

  3. Liz, I loved all your beautiful cards...especially the one from your husband. :):) Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. Fun post. Lots of beautiful sentiment. We are expecting cool weather too. We have a freeze warning for tonight. Have fun with your mulch!

  5. This is a tender and beautiful post, Liz.
    I am glad that you were so lovingly remembered by your family, I can only imagine how much they adore you.
    I am making my return to blogging, missed you all.
    Also I wanted to mention how excited I am for that your Fairy Garden was featured in a magazine! No surprise to me, as your gardens and talents are many:)
    Have a lovely weekend.

  6. What a sweet and precious post! You are so loved, look at those wonderful cards!!! Great post, Liz.
